Red Frame / White LightEdit

You keep deleting my addition to the article . Disruptive comments!

The phone box is now looked after and maintenance is done by a friends group ...... I am a member of the group that is tasked with this group. I also run the Facebook / twitter and Instagram pages

Why is our additional to the Wikipedia pages so wrong

Cardicharts is backEdit

Using Thosebalenciagas this time, editing Sweet but Psycho extensively again as well. Looks like they've been racking up their edit count on other unprotected articles (List of awards and nominations received by Cardi B) so they can edit protected articles, like Cardi B's album Invasion of Privacy (album) and Sweet but Psycho. These sockpuppeters know how to circumvent the basic protection... Ss112 19:47, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Also, have sent you an email. I never know if I should send you an notification here or not... Ss112 01:05, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Szm SockEdit

Check for sleepers on User:2019szm. 7_qz (ゆっくりしていってね!) 16:02, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

You need to contact a WP:CU. I do not have that tool. -Ad Orientem (talk) 16:03, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
Oh. Sorry! 7_qz (ゆっくりしていってね!) 16:05, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
NP. I blocked them as a WP:DUCK. It was not a CU block. -Ad Orientem (talk) 16:13, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Bridgette AndersenEdit

Can you new/unregistered users it for a small period? Thank you. Paul Benjamin Austin (talk) 14:18, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Paul. Can you give me some details regarding this? I took a look at the editing history and no recent edits have been reverted. A lot of the recent editing just looks like copy editing. Thanks... -Ad Orientem (talk) 15:01, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
On further examination some of the additions are clearly unsourced. I am going to revert them. -Ad Orientem (talk) 15:03, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
I have reverted the unsourced additions. If this continues to be a problem, let me know. -Ad Orientem (talk) 15:07, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

You've got mail!Edit

Handled. Both editors advised to AGF and avoid unnecessary interaction with one another. -Ad Orientem (talk) 22:22, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Hey AO, sent you an email. If the IP hasn't added enough unsourced content and made enough WP:NOTHERE admissions to be blocked, somebody really needs to have a stern word to them. The actual fact that they continue to tag me on their talk page telling me to not stalk them although they have to be stalking me in order to know this...the hypocrisy and contradictions are past the point of being funny to being mind-numbingly inept. I've given trying to get through to them. They've admitted to using multiple IPs and "trolling", and were still adding unsourced content despite saying they would stop. I don't know how much more can be done here. Ss112 10:49, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

@Ss112: Okay I know I shouldn't be looking at your edit history but the fact that you have claimed I admitted to "using multiple IP accounts" is a lie. I had no choice but to ping you and call you out. Where did I say that? Why are you so adamant on gaining justice? Let it go. ( (talk) 10:55, 19 January 2019 (UTC))
...Proof positive this IP editor has no capacity for any self-awareness and is WP:NOTHERE for anything positive. If you could also kindly tell this self-admitted "troll" to stop pinging me, it'd be appreciated. Hopefully, if they're blocked, as I believe they should be, they shouldn't be able to anymore. Ss112 11:07, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Looking at the IP's contributions, they don't look like a WP:NOTHERE account at all as they're making quite a few constructive edits. They have been called "you poor inexperienced editor", and have also been told to "shut up" in one of the replies on their talk page. Thats not really in line with WP:DBN.--NØ 14:42, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
MaranoFan, I'd advise you to stay out of drama that doesn't concern you. Considering your comments to me in the past few days, we all know you're just trying to look like the bigger person by being all welcoming when I know for a fact you don't regularly welcome new editors. Besides, they are not a new editor. They have used multiple IP addresses over the past few years, and I know them from their terrible attitude. Ad Orientem has even said they were equally just as bad in their talk page comments, so there's no "newbie" to "bite" here. I also didn't tell them to shut up—I said I told them "goodbye" in a reply to "get them" to shut up, which is not the same thing. But as we know, you don't always get your facts straight. In future, AO, I won't be bringing this stuff here lest petty snipers like MaranoFan chime in again (oh, but then my contributions can always be stalked...). I called the IP a NOTHERE account because they admitted to "trolling" (wow, must be here for really positive reasons if they admit to "trolling" people) and added unsourced content to no less than five articles in their apparently "constructive" editing spree. You had nothing constructive to add here at all, just bias and misinformation against me. Thanks for nothing. Ss112 22:12, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Cardicharts is back, part 3Edit

This time using Avasavatar. Extensively editing Cardi B topics, Sweet but Psycho yet again... looks like they're not giving up any time soon. Can you also maybe look into protecting:

And increasing protection on Sweet but Psycho and Invasion of Privacy (album) as regular targets of this user? As I don't know if you can rangeblock or how much else you can do... Thanks. Ss112 01:44, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Also, please delete Draft:Blood, Sweat & Tears (Ava Max song) and this useless one-sentence sandbox they made: User:Avasavatar/sandbox Ss112 01:46, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
Blocked by Materialscientist (thank you). I will take a look at the pages you listed but unless the socking is very intense and persistent, I am reluctant to throw down protection due to the effect on constructive IPs and new users. -Ad Orientem (talk) 17:23, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
The socking is definitely persistent on List of awards and nominations received by Cardi B—all three of Cardicharts' registered accounts (so far) have edited that article. The editor said Ava Max was their "favourite artist" (despite having a Twitter account dedicated to Cardi B) and extensively edited her article with their most recent account. I still believe their draft and sandbox should be deleted because both are useless and were made by an indefinitely blocked sock account, and they keep coming back to edit Sweet but Psycho and Invasion of Privacy (album) after racking up their edit count on others (to pass the protection currently on those articles), so the protection should be increased on those, but that's just my opinion. It's getting a bit tiring to extensively revert their socks on each article, so to prevent them editing in the first place would be ideal, right...? Ss112 00:32, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
I have bumped the current protection to 3 months but I am not going to extended confirmed. That's using a sledgehammer to swat a fly. The fly may be annoying but the sledgehammer is likely to cause more disruption on balance. -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:41, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Ad Orientem and @Ss112: it appears Cardicharts has made a new account FrancescoPirchio05. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 12:53, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

───────────────────────── AO, this loser, using FrancescoPirchio05, actually spent over an hour reverting my reverts of Avasavatar's edits. Obviously they have no other hobbies. This is getting out of hand. Is there any way that you can coordinate with Bbb23 to privately deduce their IP/rangeblock? @TheAmazingPeanuts: Next time this happens, can you please revert them if you see them? Ss112 20:13, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

@Ss112: The reason I didn't revert the edits because I was busy at the time and decided to revert the edits when I get back home. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 14:19, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Although I said rangeblock, I just assumed they were using multiple IPs. If they're just using one IP, I mean, hopefully Bbb23/you can find that out and block that. Ss112 21:43, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Ping Bbb23. This has been a rather persistent pest. Unsure what, if anything, you can do. But if you have any means of making it a little more difficult for them to continue their serial socking, it would be appreciated. There is another thread above with a different sock and there are two very different IPs that I blocked [1]. @Ss112 Please don't feed the trolls. I realize he is irritating but when you react and stamp your foot and tell them off it just feeds their ego. Whatever they are up to, if you see them just report it and don't interact with them. If I am not online report them at AIV and courtesy ping me so I have a record. I may have to create a subpage to keep track of all their IPs and socks. -Ad Orientem (talk) 22:18, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Another CU has already looked at this, and I don't think it would do any good for me to revisit their work.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:08, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up. -Ad Orientem (talk) 23:11, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Courtesy ping TheAmazingPeanuts. Thanks for your help. See also my above post. -Ad Orientem (talk) 22:20, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Possible sock puppet of BlaccCrabEdit

BlaccCrab seem to be back again with a new account called Croftonite99, while I don't know it's really them but do to BlaccCrab's history of using multiple accounts before, I wouldn't be surprised. TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 01:21, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

@Ss112... thoughts? -Ad Orientem (talk) 15:52, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
Blocked and tagged. A bit more difficult because the master and socks are stale, but with the behavior and CU logs, it was fairly clear.--Bbb23 (talk) 16:16, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
